Description of Acular LS
Acular LS is an ophthalmic solution used as eye drops to relieve pain and inflammation after eye surgery (corneal refractive). Acular LS is classified as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). The generic name of the drug is ketorolac tromethamine. Patients who buy Acular LS administer the eye drops with a dropper.
Indications & Dosage of Acular LS
The ophthalmic solution which makes up the eye drops in Acular LS gives relief to people who have undergone corneal refractive surgery. The drug works by inhibiting the prostaglandins produced automatically by the body.
Acular LS drops are usually prescribed with a dosage of one drop four times a day for four days. This is normal in the case of post-operative use after corneal refractive surgery. The frequency recommended should be adhered to, and the number of days for using the drops should not be extended without the doctor’s recommendation.
Special care should be taken while administering the drug. Hands should be washed thoroughly. Care should be taken that the dropper does not touch the eyes or any other surface. Once you buy Acular LS eye drops, care should be taken while administering the drops. The best way to do this is to look up, pull the lower eye lid to form a pouch, and then put a drop in it. The eyes should remain closed for one or two minutes for best results. The corner of the eye near the nose should be pressed with a finger so that Acular LS does not drain out. The dropper should never be rinsed.
Side Effects & Interactions of Acular LS
The drops cause an initial stinging or burning sensation in the eyes. People who buy Acular LS also complain of dizziness and headaches after using the drops. In some cases, the drops may cause the appearance of a rash which should be reported immediately to the doctor. Any swelling of the face or tongue should be reported to the physician. Acular LS may cause breathlessness. All these side effects are to be reported to the doctor.
The physician should be informed about any allergies that the patient might have. It is a possibility that people who are allergic to naproxen, acetylsalicylic acid or ibuprofen are likely to have an allergy to eye drops containing ketorolac. Acular LS may also cause blurring of vision. As a consequence, the patient should not drive a car or operate and dangerous machinery immediately after using the eye drops. The eye drops should also not be used by women who are pregnant. They should also not be used by people with diabetes, arthritis or illnesses related to the cornea.
Warnings & Precautions of Acular LS
It is necessary to tell the physician regarding any allergies and all medications that the patient might already be taking. Women should inform their doctor if they are pregnant or breastfeeding a child. If the patient is using other eye drops for some other condition, then the doctor should be told about it. A suitable gap has to be maintained between the uses of two different types of eye drops. Eye drops should always be used before eye ointments, otherwise the drops will not be able to enter the eye properly.
